When it comes to choosing an area rug, think long and hard about the color and pattern. Choosing a patterned rug can be a great way to add color and interest to a room with neutral furniture and walls. Likewise, a solid rug in a neutral color can be a nice way to soothe an eclectic room. Keep in mind also that a patterned rug will be better for hiding dirt and spills while a solid rug is more likely to show stains.
No matter what part of the room you're working on, be it the rugs, window treatments, or furniture arrangements, make sure you know the ideal measurements at which they should be placed. No one has it all memorized and nothing is set in stone, but make sure you’ve got a handy guide nearby so you can consult it when necessary. Remember, rules should be taken with a grain of salt. Ultimately you need to do what works best for you in your space but the rules exist as a guideline to help you figure out what is most pleasing to the eye.
